OOTD: Basic blue & a pair of boots!

Hello everyone!

Summer is an amazing season; the hot summer sun, super cute dresses and sun kissed skin but.. I can't deny that little side of me that waits for the cold breeze.

If you didn't know, scarves and boots are my obsession and.. When I say obsession I mean addiction, every cute pair or piece is a must and they are basically a wardrobe staple for the cold season. 

So, as soon as the weather started its way to winter with a little bit of cold wind, I couldn't resist reaching out to the back of my cupboard and grabbing a scarf along with a pair of boots.

And here's what I put together, my little OOTD...

My tan is hanging in there! 

As you can tell, I'm not the best poser (yet....haha) but I will work on that, self timer isn't always a piece of cake, you know. Anyway, I kept the look quite simple with the basic jeans & a navy blue top with little diamonds on the sleeves. I gave the look a little twist - still on the casual side, and added a white scarf and a pair of combat boots which I found in F21 for £6.5 bargin! 

The whole look is from Forever 21, except for the scarf which I had gotten from Marks & Spencers years back, but they're still available for around £8, I believe. 

What are your winter staples? Do you have any go to looks? Let me know in the comments below!

Lots of love,

Review: They're Real! Mascara

Hello lovely!

For the longest time, I've been addicted to my Lancome Doll Eyes mascara. It's been a favourite, an essential and my go-to mascara for an everyday look for quite a while.. Until I was talked into stepping out of my little bubble and trying out a new one.. They're Real! mascara by Benefit.

As the saleswoman went on about freebies and goodies I'd get with one more purchase of the insanely wanted Benefit mascara and a whole shelf set up to gorgeously place and promote these beauties, all I could think of is how cute this would look in my collection.. The vintage meets classy girl look this packaging has just made me want it.. I mean, how can a shopaholic say no when someone is constantly encouraging them into buying something they now believe they need?

I've seen raves and obsessions over this mascara, but for once, I think it's worth the hype. It does exactly what it says, from giving you all the length you need, a touch of volume to curling your eyelashes and giving each and every eyelash it's well deserved fair attention.

The bristles are made to separate your eyelashes while applying and with the length and volume, you get darker lashes which enhance your eyes and give them a stunning look with just one layer.

The mascara dries up on your eyelashes quite quickly, which can be a pro and a con at the same time, a pro because you won't have to worry about it smudging, but a con because it makes it harder to do more than a layer or two. 

Personally, I don't like making it obvious that I have loads of mascara on my eyes, but I've been able to get long lashes with loads of volume by applying the BADgal lashes mascara before applying They're Real! and it'll give me that natural smokey look without a spider eye. So, if you're into layering between two different mascaras, I'd suggest applying this one last. 

All in all, I love the mascara and I'm really impressed, so I would definitely repurchase.

I hope you enjoyed this post and make sure you join my giveaway here, for a full makeup bag with all the things you need for a completed look. 

Until next time,
